The Madwoman UpstairsFiction somehow related to the Brontës will be a common trend these coming months. Fictions about the Brontës are not so abundant since the historical novel fever of some years ago but sequels or retellings of their novels are even more popular then they used to be (even if there is never a shortage of them). But there is a third type of Brontë-related fiction: the contemporary novel which features the Brontës as a commentary to the action and their presence in the life of the characters as motifs, landscapes. influences through the reading of their novels or even the world of Brontë studies. Recent examples that come to mind without any intention of being exhaustive are Four Dreamers and Emily by Stevie Davis, The Brontë Project by Jennifer Vandervelt or The Brontë Plot by Katherine Reay.
